Located on the 13th level of the CBD’s Greek Community Building, this rooftop bar offers stunning views of the Eureka Skydeck, the Arts Center and even the Bolte Bridge.
The menu, developed by former Press Club chef Alex Xinis, draws on Mediterranean influences and features delicious dishes like calamari with ouzo mayonnaise, lentil and eggplant moussaka, and lamb shoulder with horiatiki (Greek salad) and tzatziki. Plus, over half the menu is gluten-free!
Alessandro Nardini (Nick and Nora’s) is the head bartender and he has created a menu of cocktails that are both delicious and unique. Our signature drink is Hannibal’s Dream, made with bourbon, pine and aquafaba. Ambrosia is another favorite, made with beeswax-aged whisky, smoked honey and cocoa. We also have a wide selection of beer, wine and spirits.
The head bartender, Joanie, has put together a fantastic menu of drinks that will please everyone. Start with her- grapefruit-y house spritz, then move on to the Pina Colada Punch, a tropical mix of reposado and smoked-pineapple tequila, Montenegro, pineapple, coconut and lime, or the Italo Disco, with vodka,, salted raspberry.
Gigi also features a dedicated section for low- (and no-) alc cocktails that includes some delicious options like the Lo Flo, with cucumber, elderflower, lemon, and salt-and-pepper tincture; as well as the Silent Italo Disco.
The menu features dishes like ricotta-filled zucchini flowers, marinated sardine skewers and fried ’nduja soldiers with three cheeses. If you’re looking for something heartier, Gigi also has a delicious bowl of orecchiette with broccoli and anchovies. No matter what you order, be sure to save room for dessert – Gigi’s tiramisu is not to be missed!
